LOSS 18-32

In a game marred by multiple errors and penalities from both teams, the Rabbitohs have gone down to the Canberra Raiders 32-18 at ANZ Stadium for Round 21 of the NRL Telstra Premiership. The ensuing kick-off would see the Rabbitohs rewarded with a drop out, thanks to a stray bounce and some committed defence to pin Raiders fullback Jack Wighton in-goal. Centre Hymel Hunt looked to score the opening try in his first game back from injury, however this time the bounce of the ball would favour the Raiders. Hunt would then lose possession again just a few minutes later due to a bad play the ball 20 metres from the Rabbitohs line, however a penalty for Shannon Boyd being offside would relieve some pressure for the Red and Greens. A charge down by Blake Austin caused Adam Reynolds to lose possession of the ball on the halfway line, and in the next set the Raiders would gain continue to dominate possession after Tyrell Fuimaono illegally tackled Joseph Leilua without the ball. Canberra would continue to roll through the middle and in the 8th minute captain Jarrod Croker would open the scoring through some quick passing. He then converted his own try. Poor communication and string of penalties would gift the Raiders another golden opportunity in attack, however this time they opted to extend their lead through a penalty goal in the 16th minute. A strong bust from Joseph Leilua put the Rabbitohs on the back foot once again, and an Aiden Sezer cross field kick ricocheted off Robert Jennings’ foot into the hands of Joseph Tapine, who crossed next to the posts just four minutes later. Croker would then make it 3 goals from 3 attempts. The score nearly extended further with the Raiders sweeping the ball to the right side of the field, however a stray ball allowed fullback Alex Johnston to streak 40 metres up field, which relieved some much needed pressure. With the Rabbitohs back on the attack, errors and pinpoint kicking from Adam reverted the pressure back onto the Raiders, and Cody Walker was able to open their account by regathering his own kick to score in the 26th minute. Unfortunately, just minutes later momentum was lost after a loose carry from Damien Cook allowed the Raiders to reset their attack 30 metres from the Rabbitohs line, and the ill-discipline continued with Fuimaono again giving away a penalty. With the Raiders parked in the Rabbitohs’ red zone, a Kurt Baptiste kick from dummy half forced a dropout, and on the next set some miscommunication saw Nick Cotric find the line, and with the conversion from Croker, the Raiders were up at 14 by the break. The second stanza began with some up tempo footy, and the Rabbitohs’ intent to compete was highlighted by a strong hit by Hymel Hunt on Nick Cotric after the first set of play. A Jarrod Croker linebreak nearly led to a try to the Raiders, however poor handling saved the Rabbitohs from the score being extended any further. The Rabbitohs identically returned serve with Bryson Goodwin making a bust only to lose possession, however a penalty for interference in the ruck allowed the home side to stamp their authority. Back to back penalties would gift Souths more attacking chances, and would capitalise on an Adam Reynolds grubber kick with Tyrell Fuimaono scoring his first try in Red and Green and his first grade career. An Adam Reynolds conversion would close the defecit to just 8 points. An unlucky bounce prevented Reynolds from kicking a 40/20, and a high shot on Robert Jennings from his opposite Nick Contric further welcomed the Rabbitohs back into the contest. The flow of errors continued however, with Angus Crichton play the ball going awry, and a ruck penalty would gift the Raiders more possession. After a Reynolds half break, the kicking maestro was taken off the field due to a concussion, which saw the Raiders took advantage, leading to Angus Crichton would be sent to the sin bin in the 58th minute for committing a professional foul on Cotric, who nearly scored off a linebreak, leaving the Rabbitohs one man down. The Raiders would then take advantage of the absence of Crichton with interchange forward Luke Bateman crashing over for his first try of the year, and Croker’s conversion put the men from the ACT 14 points ahead with just less than a quarter of the match to go. Former Rabbitoh Dave Taylor made use of the difference in numbers with a bust up the middle, however the work was undone with another ex-Rabbitoh in Michael Oldfield then giving away a penalty after tackling Bryson Goodwin in midair. Youngster Cam Murray came off the bench and tried to inspire his teammates with some strong defence up the middle, however ill-discipline continued to mar the Rabbitohs ability to keep the Raiders at bay, and despite the effort, eventually the Raiders found the line with Michael Oldfield in the 66th minute through a cut-out pass from halfback Aiden Sezer. Croker then converted the try from the sideline. Despite the result being beyond reach, the Rabbitohs continued to compete in closing minutes of the match, with Alex Johnston crossing the line in the last minute of play thanks to a Bryson Goodwin chip kick, however their effort went unrewarded with the Raiders winning by 20 points.

U20 National Youth Holden Cup - Round 21

v Canberra, 3:15pm

WIN 46-16

Late Changes - Hiroti and Rodwell was trimmed 24 hours before the match. Manowski, Mougios, Butler are out.

The Young Rabbitohs have got back to winning ways after a comprehensive 46-16 defeat of the Canberra Raiders at ANZ Stadium for Round 21 of the NYC Competition. Playing at ANZ Stadium for the first time in two weeks, the young Rabbitohs were looking to get back into the winners circle after their loss against the Sharks last Friday. Their opponents, the Canberra Raiders,came into the match sitting in a similar position on the ladder and vying for a finals spot. The Rabbitohs kicked off proceedings with some strong defence forcing an error on the halfway line after the first set of the game. A penalty allowed them to make their way downfield, with an Adam Doueihi kick forcing the Raiders back behind their try line. A quick play the ball let fullback Beau Cordtz send winger Jalen Reweti to score on the left edge in the 7th minute of play for the first try of the match. The committed defence continued to pin the Raiders in their own half and Reweti was in again after an almost identical sweep with Adam Doueihi converting. The score sat at 12-0 after just 14 minutes. Doueihi’s pinpoint kicking would prove to be a great asset, continually putting Canberra on the back foot. An error by dynamic fullback Beau Cordtz would hand a golden opportunity to the Raiders in the 19th minute, however the tough defence would return serve and force an error from the Raiders, again coming from the left edge. Reweti was nearly in for his third of the day, however Doueihi’s kick was just too long, however clumsiness with the ball would give the Rabbitohs the ball again. Strong defence from the Raiders would force the Bunnies out into touch. More strong runs from forwards Talakai and lock Gabe Hamlin further asserted the Bunnies’ dominance, which paid off with a try to Sam Johnstone with just under ten minutes to go in the first half. More ill-discipline by the Raiders only helped the Rabbitohs cause, and they were almost in again with Talakai being stopped just short from the line. An unlucky touch off a kick gave the Raiders six more tackles 30 metres out, and a few tackles later new recruit Erin Clark crashed over in the 36th minute from dummy half. Poor communication and ill discipline nearly let the Raiders in again with a few minutes to go, however the brave Bunnies were able to hold on to a 12-point lead at halftime. Doueihi would go from hero to villain with Raiders second rower Hudson Young scoring off an intercept pass just one minute into the second half. The error fest continued with a huge hit by winger Tyrone Taukamo forcing a dropped ball, however the Rabbitohs forfeited possession with a drop ball of their own in the next set. A break up the middle by captain Kalani Ili helped set up a try to promising centre Campbell Graham, thanks to some quick thinking by Talakai and Doueihi, however the try was unconverted. The forwards regained their mojo with some strong running and bone crunching defence and continued to dominate, and a penalty on the halfway line in the 54th minute, and Adam Doueihi almost crashed over, however it was ruled an obstruction and a penalty was given to the Raiders. Back to back penalties would allow the Raiders to chance their arm on the Rabbitohs line, however some try saving defence thanks to Cordtz. A clever offload by interchange forward Jordan Mailata nearly sent Cordtz away, and a clever kick from halfback Dean Hawkins earned them a dropout. The middle forwards continued to charge through, and their efforts would be rewarded with Dylan O’Connor crossing the line in the 59th minute off brilliant Hawkins pass. Doueihi would convert the try and give the Bunnies a 16 point lead with just under 20 minutes to go. Another break by Hudson Young nearly saw the Raiders capitalise, however the resilient defence continued to impress. The frustration of the Raiders would be on show with another penalty handing the Rabbitohs some much earned territory, and soon Mailata would score one of his trademark barge over tries under the posts in the 65th minute, and a Doueihi conversion putting the score beyond doubt. Campbell Graham crashed over in the left hand corner just 3 minutes later thanks to an Adam Doueihi cutout pass. A failed attempt at a short kick off went the way of the Rabbitohs, however the Raiders would score a late consolation try with 5 to go. Despite having won the game, the job was far from done for the boys from Redfern with Gabe Hamlin streaking away from 40 metres out, sidestepping the fullback in the process.
